Herrenbreitungen > WI > MN
I am researching the Anacker family that came from the Herrenbreitungen area of Germany. Sometimes referred to the Hesse or Hessen Cassel area. This family first settled in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Oral family history also says that there was an Andreas or Andrew Anacker that was a Hessian Soldier during the American revolution, and never went back to Germany. I have not been able to find out what happened to Andreas, or verify that he belongs to the family.
